So I normally like to write up my thoughts on movies as I watch them but I’ve fallen behind quite a bit. It’s probably better I combine them now that some time has passed since I saw them (I think this is evident by how little I say towards the end). Well, here goes. Spotlight […]Read more "Quick fire movie catch up!"
Kubo and the two strings is a stop motion animation with a very good story. Apart from Captain America Civil War, this is my favourite film of 2016. It’s a story about loss and how we can deal with it, which if I might say is a pretty dark theme for an animation. This movie […]Read more "Kubo and the two strings"
Ghost in the Shell is a Hollywood adaption of a Manga/Anime back in the 90’s and let’s be honest, my expectations of it was low. Why?

Gantz is a very violent, gory and sexually explicit manga. Having said that it does have an interesting story and world. When people die at […]Read more "Gantz: O"
True memoirs of an international assassin is a Netflix Original movie. I had high expectations because Netflix has produced a number of great shows – Daredevil, Making a Murderer, etc. But this movie was… ok… It started off quite fun, how the protagonist re-writes his fictional story and you had bits where the story characters […]Read more "True memoirs of an international assassin"
Pandemic is a camera point of view zombie movie which was hard to watch as the violence was often too graphic (heads beaten until they splat open). The movie is often claustrophobic so it was scary. But there are things that I thought was outright stupid though. For example, how can you impersonate a famous […]Read more "Pandemic"
